East Wind Angel

Good evening, a quick post with a card I finally managed to many interruptions today! I used a beautiful image from the East Wind available here , to make a Christmas card. The L/O is a simple one using two pieces of metallic cardstock, one silver one blue, both embossed and arranged in a sunburst pattern. I die cut the image into a circle, allowing her wings to spread over the edges. I've coloured her with copics and added some delicate sparkle to her wings and hair with clear Wink of Stella. The sentiment is stamped and embossed.  It would have been quite quick to make if I hadn't had so many visitors today- but it was lovely to see them all.
Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely evening.
